    I support this measure and I hope that it becomes law. It is time to make these huge fortune 500 corporations pay their fair share of taxes. The big corporations who have outsourced the most should be compelled to pay additional heavy taxes due to eliminating thousands of American jobs. Make the wealthy bastards pay.

    Heh - it's funny how you think you have any credibility on any issue at all. Yes, I do support the bill as well. The problem is you can bet that there won't be jobs coming back. They'll just offshore it through outsourcing or automate it - which is likely what would happen anyway.

    It's stupefying how little you know of what happens in business or the incentives and disincentives that exist.

The problem is you can bet that there won't be jobs coming back, if I have any say in the matter. They'll just offshore it through outsourcing or automate it - which is likely what would happen anyway because that's how I'm getting rich, by offering to offshore those jobs for those companies.

    You don't know what the hell you are talking about. If anyone on here is stupid, it is you riddler because you have these foolhardy ideas that letting the wealthy corporations do whatever they damned well please to the disregard of society is perfectly allright. It is you that lacks credibility on this and almost every other issue discussed on rj. These corporations are going to offshore more jobs, than their taxes should be raised even higher to a point that almost three quarters of their corporate profits are taxed and taken away from the greedy, rich bastards. Since you live in Canada, issues here in the US are none of your damned business so you just stifle it. Nobody asked you for your two cents. You don't live or work in the US so you have nothing to say about it. Go get yourself a life if that is possible.

    It won't raise additional tax dollars if inacted. The wonderful art of "decoupling" rules. And when that doesn't work, simply bail.
